[applause] >> thank you very much, ambassador miller. our next speaker to answer the question, dr. patrick clawson. from the washington institute. [applause] >> ambassador -- i hope is quite correct. but what i thought i would do is discuss a different topic. and that is some of the barriers that may remain to a close working relationship between the iranian and american governments in the event that there is a nuclear agreement. and it's useful for us to recall that there are a wide range of other issues on which the two governments differ. and to take one very obvious example, the united states government has now for 30 years listed the arabian g

released polls show president obama taking a big hit especially when it comes to his honesty and his ability to manage the government. take a look at the poll a. clear majority of americans answering no to the question is president obama honest and trustworthy and only 40% of the americans think he managed the federal government effectively. >> that is down 12% since may. on a somewhat more positive note, 71% polls say he is likable. though that number is dun as well. a train derail him overnight in spartanburg, north carolina, all of the seven cars involved remain upright and there were no reports of serious injuries. 207 passengers an 11 krou members are being taken to their destinations by charter bus. no word yet on exactly what caused that derail. . officials are investigating the shooting death of a postal worker in maryland. 26-year-old tyson jerome burnett was gunned down in the landover area. officials aren't saying whether they believe this crime was random or targeted. a $125,000 reward is being offered for information about his death. a woman in california alive this morn
care website. you may recall it had a problematic roll out to say the least. a senior obama or official said that it's easier to sign up now. the website will be running smoothly for most people by the end of november. the election day across america. several of the nation's largest cities are voting on mayor, in virginia and new jersey where they are electing governors. we invite you to go to www.aljazeera.com where you can follow stories on the key races. there is also a blog with updates on the voting, and later this evening results as they come in. i'm tony harris in new york. we have got more news coming up for you in a full bulletin in the mechanics hour, but "inside story" is next al jazeera. >> stalemate in syria and nations in the gulf are pushing for their own influence in the region. you're watching "inside story" from washington. hello, i'm libby casey. it's gone on and on, and shows no clear end the war in syria between president bashar al-assad forces and a myriad of rebel groups and islamist fight whose want to see him out of power. there are talks while offering small he
in order to try to advance the obama administration's regulatory agenda and they just broke the senate rules in order to exercise the power grab. so i would sum it up by saying it is a sad day in the history of the senate. after today, advise and consent probably means to them 100% consent. senator alexander would give you statistics on how common the rejection of nominees has been in the past because i think it will be eye-opening for you. >> thank you. in my view, this is the most important and most dangerous restructuring of senate rules since thomas jefferson wrote them at the beginning of our country. it is really not about the filibuster. it is another raw exercise of political power to permit the majority to do anything it wants whenever it wants to do it. it is obamacare ii in that sense. as senator levin said, after world war ii, a united states senate in which the majority can do anything it wants any time it wants is a senate without rules. it would be like the red sox falling behind in boston and saying to the cardinals, well, where the home team so we will add a few inning
-old american's alleged apology to north korea. >>> and today is the self imposed deadline that president obama promised the healthcar healthcare.gov website will be working for most people. >>> syria's civil war continues to hos flood into neighbor countries. 2.2 million people have thread syria and taken up in other countries. many are living in camps of plastic tents to protect them from the elements. we have reports from camps in jordan. >> reporter: thermal blankets and clothing distribution has just started at this camp. you can see behind me there are hundreds of refugee who is are queuing to receive these items on the first day of direction, which is always stress busy. the high thermal blankets are a valuable commodity, especially important for residents and refugee who is are still living inside plastic tents and have much less protection from the rain and the cold and the wind in the winter. now aid agencies are also distributing clothing kits for babies and children up to the age of five. what you see in these boxes behind me includes enough winter clothing for 24,000 children. now
% even among groups that were the most important to barack obama's white coalition. men, educated white men, college educated whites and folks out west and in the south. these were people that were par of the obama coalition along with african-americans that allowed them to get over the top. amongst those groups she's fine, much better position than eight years ago. chris christie, whole other story. all the conversation me and chris and everyone said, he's got problems with the more conservative wing of the party, that shows up in this poll, andrea. >> meanwhile, a lot of problems the white house is facing, chris cillizza, on health care. beginning to see that, democrats up for election, senate democrats very concerned about losing the senate because of obama care. a lot of talk they are not going to be able to get this website fixed. there is the policy problem where the president's promise was clearly not a fair, accurate promise. they had to know that going in. that was really revealed in chuck's interview with the president last week. >> the problem here, andrea, people always say
disastrous health care rollout, president obama announced a fix that would allow people to continue their plans under the health care rollout for a year. if it was a policy solution to a political problem, it was also a mea culpa. >> there is no doubt people are frustrated. i would be, too. i was not informed correctly that the website would not be working the way it was supposed to. had i been informed, i wouldn't be going out saying this is great. we did fumble the ball on it. what i'm going to make sure we do is get it fixed. >> unfortunately the president is looking to recover the fumble. because if you like it, you still might not be able to keep it. it's even hard for me to get out. although the new proposal laos insurers to keep people on existing and substandard plans, it does not necessarily mean insurers or individual states will agree to it. president obama is meeting today with insurance ceos to discuss ways to work together in a conversation that is guaranteed to be as contentious as it is awkward. already insurers are rejecting the white house plan as are the state ins
